Much has been said recently about the necessity of having younger, healthier people sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The implication is that this is a disingenuous way to have them subsidize insurance for older, sicker persons. That may be true, but I ask, how different is that from those of us long past having babies or school-age children subsidizing maternity care, birth control and schools, among other things?
If we want to be part of society, we have to be willing to contribute to all aspects of that society, even those that don’t benefit us directly.
